They don't ship worldwide, and even if they did... Taxes would eat me alive =/

I have to buy locally, but sure, shoot Cheesy
Always good to have some insight into good hardware.

i suppose one of us in the us could always ship you things but you're right it would cost a ton! Tongue

Yeah, about a thousand dollars or so, maybe more..
It's not worth it.

If anyone living closer can ship one to me I would appreciate it xD

Take a look through the "Pictures of your Rig" thread. As far as I'm concerned any money spent on fancy boxes and desks is money not spent on GPU cards - and hence, wasted.

That assumes everyone has the same values and purpose. The guys running 42 cards from one rig in their mom's basement with 6 different fans from homedepot because they're 17 years old and don't know dick about distributed computing or clusters, well those are one type of miner. There are others that approach it professionally and have experience in datacenters and HPC/clustering - those are the guys that don't consider infrastructure a waste of money.

Cost is relative. Personally I don't mind dropping several hundred on a managed switch for my rack because I can watch port statistics and have multiple VLANs, but then there are other miners that cobble together a switch and router form a yard sale. It all depends on what you want out of your infrastructure and how much you are willing to invest in quality.

Putting all your money into GPUs is one thing but spending it all at the expense of having a stable and reliable infrastructure is stupid.

I didn't build a fancy case because I thought it was cool,

I built because I needed a way mount a lot of equipment in a small space and vent it outside...

I'm saving a significant amount of money on AC by doing so, and my living room is more than 15F cooler.

This is the difference - I do not have my 16 GPUs in my living room, so my circumstances are different and thus require a server rack. If I were keeping my gear in my living room I would also go open-air. Smiley

I would have to agree with shotgun on that....
If you can work something that will last longer and is way more organized for a couple hundred bucks more...

Anyways, I already worked my way on that thread, all sorts of nice stuff there.
But I suppose I will stick to the idea of a rack.
Unless someone else has a better idea Grin

Cheers.
